Fiddlers of Sligo: Oisín Mac Diarmada & Daithí Gormley

Great concert with Oisín Mac Diarmada & Daithí Gormley on 11/11/18 at Burlington City Arts!  Thanks all who attended, those who were interested who couldn’t attend, to Zach, Sadie, Eamon and the rest of the BCA crew, YTV Board members Yasi Zeichner and Ani Kulik for helping with set up/clean up, sales table and ‘box office’, Pamela Hathaway for helping get the word out, & especially Oisín & Daithi for making the trek  up from the NY Trad Festival on Saturday, and before the Monday flight back to Ireland.

We had the usual full house reserved, and a few who weren’t able to make it last minute, and waiting list folks without enough time to fill the vacancies….  not a major problem, and tolerable, though we probably will turn to an advanced ticket purchase system if we have more events selling out like this in the future.  Good problem to have :))  Delighted to send Oisín & Daithi on their way with a lighter load (all their CDs and tune books sold) and interest in coming back to Burlington some other time.

The space at Burlington City Arts is the same room we’ll be  using for the acoustic evening concerts during the inaugural Young Tradition Festival (previously called Young Tradition Weekend) starting 4/29/19 and continuing through 5/5/19.  Lots more info about that on the way.
